Khandan –

Standard & Poor’s Ratings said it affirmed Iraq’s rating at B- / B with a stable outlook.

The agency said a stable outlook reflected expectations that the fiscal deficit will be modest over the next few years, Reuters reported.

She said she expected the prospects for Iraq’s economic growth to be under pressure from political tensions at home, production quotas imposed by the OPEC agreement and restrictions on government spending.

The agency said it expected Iraq’s GDP to grow 1.9 percent in 2018 in line with production cuts in 2017-2018 before rising 2.5 percent in 2019 as oil production recovers.
